welcome to my new Design Team inspiration
for the Company: Scrap FX Australia.
Here is the link to the blog from Scrap FX: Blog
Scrap FX Australia is a chipboard company with high quality chipboards,
stamps, stencil and silhouette.
I made for the February month an abstract scrapbook layout on Kraft paper
in black and white.
What do I call abstract scrapbooking (ASB)?
Well, first of all there are NO 3D flowers on the layout but
chipboards, iron wire, sewing thread and as well cut photos.
For me the background work is the most important aspect of ASB
I see my abstract scrapbook page as a further processing of the photo.
In the best scene of the words: so the photographer and the scrapbooker stand side by side,
to create a work of ART together.
I create my ASB on monochrome paper, so that the background becomes more effective.
Just as when you will start painting on white canvas. I applied the colors with the
paletknife. Also you can use other mediums such as: modeling paste, crackle paste,
embossing powder etc etc etc.... Stencils or stamps can be used as tools.
Glitter, micro beads and art stones are a nice finish touch.
But anyway here is my layout...

WOW embossing powder, Ecoline white,
